Burgers, Beer, And Tampa Bay

On Thursday, February 6th, Tampa Bay Elites took shelter from the wind in the newly renovated event space of Ford’s Garage in Downtown St. Pete. 

Ford’s Garage treated Yelp Elites to a carousel of offerings ranging from gargantuan fried onion rings, to wonton ahi tuna tacos and beer cheese macaroni. Guests were still ooh-ing and awe-ing over their signature entrees when Director of Restaurant Openings (slash chef extraordinaire), Jennifer Paci, paraded into the room with a ten pound hamburger! 

Of course, Ford’s Garage wanted to ensure the Elites’ mouths didn’t go dry. Their friends from Motorworks Brewing led a sampling of craft beer. The crowd learned all about the stories behind some of their most famous brews like Pulp Friction.

The evening was filled with non-stop laughter and cheer as Ford’s Garage challenged guests to trivia with prizes! They even sent home two lucky Elites with gift cards to the restaurant.
